Mondays with Mom..Potato Patties
When I was a kid I could hardly wait for there to be left over mashed potatoes from supper. Leftover potatoes meant fried potato patties the next day..one of my favorites!
Mom would let me help shape them into patties while she melted butter in her cast iron frying pan. Then she would sprinkle them with salt and pepper and fry them until they were golden brown. Some times she would add some minced onion to the potatoes before she shaped them into patties..that was always good too!
I still make them, but not often, as there usually aren't any leftover mashed potatoes!
I like to sprinkle them with seasoned salt and some pepper, and often use non stick spray to fry them instead of butter.
This time I used butter. I added some more on top, too!
